MHRM Literature

The following is an exact copy (typos and all) of a valuable forum post by AVFM forum member Leviathan, which was compiled with the assistance of several other members. Their forum aliases have been preserved at the bottom. This post will be updated when that post is.

This is an amazing list of MHRM literature, and you should use it as a reading list if you want to learn about the movement. Many thanks go to Leviathan for allowing me to repost this!


Here is a list of books on MRM relevant topics: relationship advice, father’s rights, criticism of feminism, circumcision, economics and more.

    1. Thanks for the input, but the post is meant to mirror the forum post I mentioned. If you let Leviathan (the original author) know, he may update his list. I will then, in turn, update this one.

  1. Great list. A book called The Law and Economics of Child Support Payments by William Comanor (and chapters by Sanford Braver) (published I believe in 2005) is a comprehensive, quantitative, qualitative and detailed analysis of child support from a political and financial perspective. It helped me understand why the government ordered me to pay four times as much child support as I should be paying and why I can’t see my children. There’s a lot of examples and math and if you’re not a mathematician, then it takes the reader through the catastrophe step by step like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Not for the faint at heart.
